Cookie Cutter Gets Character in Madison, WI- NARI CoTY Award Winner!

Friday night we took home another NARI COTY Award for this amazing first floor remodel!
Winning category: Residential Interior $75-150K.

This home in Madison, WI had a boxy layout, small kitchen, and lacked character. Also, it was short on enough storage for pantry and small kitchen appliances. The homeowners wanted a more open floor plan with better flow. By re configuring the space, we were able to give them the home they’ve always wanted.

First, we opened up the entry to allow flow into a new mudroom and laundry room. We used wasted space in the old dining room to create these two new rooms. Then we turned the old laundry room into a walk-in pantry, giving the homeowners some much needed storage. 

Next, we expanded the kitchen and removed an awkward and unwanted third dining space. The first floor is now visible from the kitchen for optimal entertaining. In addition, the peninsula wraps around and flows into the sun room, allowing for extra seating. 

Lastly, we updated the home with “old house character.”

We stained the honey oak floors a darker more rustic brown. We added touches of industrial flare while making sure the materials looked timeless. Furthermore, we added an archway into the dining room with a tray ceiling. This gives the space some architectural detail and a wow-factor. 

In the end, we transformed this first floor from 3 rooms into 5 rooms. The homeowners now have a showstopper kitchen and dining space that is open to the living room. As a result, they couldn’t be happier. We checked off everything on their wish list and more. 

A special thank you to all of our contractors and carpenters who make our designs a wonderful reality!

Two Story Addition- NARI Tour Home 2014

After having to cancel our tour last year due to the large tree that had fallen on it, we were ecstatic to be showing the addition project this year at the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (Madison Chapter) Tour of Remodeled Homes!

The tour home featured a two story addition and was a whole house remodel. The addition houses a master suite on the second floor, a bright and open family room with adjacent mud room and powder bath on the first floor, and a full height music room on the basement level.

The homeowners wanted a design that offered high contrast, modern elements, and a restored historical interior. The house previously had ranch trim and slab doors, which were not original to the house. We revamped all of the trims to be a higher profile, simple design. This both compliments the historical style while working with the client’s modern tastes. We refurbished two doors from the garage, then ordered new doors to match the style of these original two panel doors. Archways in the open concept great room give added character and architectural details. The new modern kitchen has tons of storage space and is much more functional.

The exterior features a MoistureShield deck which is not only sustainable but very low maintenance. It only requires the homeowners to pressure wash once per year. You can read more about our journey with the exterior of the home in our recent blog post Colonial Curb Appeal Project in Madison, WI.

Thanks to all who visited! We had the most visited tour site of 2014!
